Australian cinema exploded onto the international scene in the Seventies and has remained a considerable source of quality film since then, despite so much of Australia’s best talent being lured away by Hollywood. What’s your favorite Australian film? Richard Pena’s all-time favorite is Jane Campion’s amazing debut feature, SWEETIE. He also favors Fred Schepisi’s THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH, which he considers one of the most powerful films on race.
